Former Liverpool and Real Madrid midfielder Steve McManaman has backed Manchester City to win the Champions League this season.

The draw for this term’s edition of Europe’s top competition took place in Istanbul on Thursday.

City will face Borrusia Dortmund, Sevilla and FC Copenhagen in Group G.

“There are so many teams that can go all the way,” McManaman told BT Sport. 

“You saw last year with Real Madrid that they went all the way and at times that we thought they were out.

“It is going to be close, but I do believe Manchester City with Haaland now is a different animal in Europe.

“City normally have possession and I think in some games this season they may approach it differently and let other teams have the ball because he is so dangerous on the break.

“I think they might change their tactics slightly, but out of all the British teams in Europe, City have got the best chance of winning.”
